Driven, I just looked at an old jar of store brand that expired in 2012. It was produced 09. Seems fine to me. If compared to a brand new jar, perhaps it might smell milder, but I can’t tell. It’s still well scented and looks fine.Statistics: Poste…

Recipes • Re: Sourdough Dreams

I started, AGAIN, a sour dough about a month ago. The previous few I had to throw out. They smelled ugly, spoiled, in just days. I can usually get a good sour aroma, but it doesn’t give any loft. So I’ve been cheating with dry yeast for loft, sta…

A little over 10 years ago, I was in the "why do you need a pistol" crowd. Understood long guns, had a couple. Fast forward a couple years, I bought a crappy, worn out .357 revolver to help someone out financially. That. Was. All. She. …

General Preparedness Discussion • Re: 2017 SEPTEMBER – What Did You Do To Prep This Week/Month

September 24, 2017 arkieready 0

I haven’t done much of anything in awhile. Got the blahs. But. I did get the shed where I can get in it, several empty cardboard boxes tossed out. Restacked existing stuff. Got several tubs of stuff out of the RV. It’s too cluttery in there. It’s getting time to think about getting out of the RV, its deteriorating and I’m getting tired of RV living.

Ladies Section • Re: Does Anyone Still Sew?

September 23, 2017 arkieready 0

I wish I had more time to sew again. Last time I was in goodwill, I found a 100% silk blouse in a nice neutral gray and an ombré gray to purple skirt, also pure silk with a lining. The blouse fit except the 3/4 sleeves were too snug, the skirt well, just no. But the material was gorgeous. And I couldn’t think of a thing to do with it.
Old sweaters can be cut and sewn into use items. Old ratty towels to pot holders, etc.
an ex-bf received a quilt made from his gramma’ s old house dresses, just a simple pattern with lots of memories sewn in it.

Crap!! Driven, I really don’t like you right now. Omg. Frigging daddy long legs are freaking disgusting. The big spider was creepy but ooooh I feel sick, them other things.
The only bug I’m afraid of. If I had that in my house I would just move.
Cast iron was talking a spider not aliens from the pits of hell.

Sigh. Well, I finally deleted undelivered messages to Reb. I miss his dry sarcasm. And helpfulness. Quirky humor.
I’m kinda feeling like too many are moving out of my reach. . People from church leaving, friends moving, people here no longer heard from. Acquaintances passing.
Feels like fall. Ya know what I mean?
